In memory of Christie Clark (Wolfe)

On August 8, 2018, we lost my sister Christie Clark (Wolfe). Just 12 days from her 44th birthday, she left us too soon. As most know, she suffered a stroke some years ago. That process almost killed her with brain surgery and a partial removal that left her balance out of whack. After that, it took a very long time for her to get the strength to get out and sing again. She did it and it was hard, but the real road to recovery never really had the right path for her. Lymphadema began to consume her. She had a removal, but still no correct road to recovery. She had a kidney issue a couple years ago that could have killed her, and she made it out again. The lymphadema came on again so aggressively and she wasn't helping her physical self like she should. She had pretty much stopped going out and physically didn't do much of anything. Moving was pain, emotions can be good and bad. Her body finally said no more.

She loved movies and music and to laugh at the stupidest or awkward things. A beautiful mind of useless knowledge when it came to pop culture from just about any era, but I would guess the 80s were her favorite. You could probably lose a game of 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon and tie it up with a John Hughes film or a Saturday Night Live skit and a Fleetwood Mac song that Steve Perry watched while dreaming of dinner combos from All American Burger. I share some of that knowledge  but not at that level. 

Class of Wilcox 1992 in Santa Clara, CA. She lived most of her life being raised by a single mother and grandmother along with her awesome brother. True, we didn't get along all of the time, but we always knew that Kiss knew how to Rock and Roll All Night and Jaws could find its way into any size mass of water. Annoying is the main word I could use, but she did love her friends and family more than anything. 

At this time I am setting up this page as a way to help cover the cost of her cremation (which unexpectedly was a lot higher in cost due to her size issues), bills, and possibly final costs to set up her family to keep moving forward for the short term. I set cost high, but do not expect to see anything like that. Services are not scheduled at this moment. Maybe something will come up locally. I would advise to check her Facebook page for any changes.

Thank you all for all that have reached out and have had great things to say. I'm sure she is watching down on us waiting for a lost concert and fighting with our grandmother.
